What's better for a robot? huge or small
March 23, 2013
I would like to share some opinions about what is better for you:
A small robot or a huge robot?
I'm building robots since 2008, now the only one i am working on is really big.
I mean it is 13Kg of weight and 1.25m of height, it can speech through the shield for the arduino who acts as mainboard and has a lot of room to add really cool stuff just by using i²c(for example). It has two sonars, a pseudo-hand and nice coloured leds, powerful actuators, current sensors and it is built almost 90% with metal...BUT i was thinking about tearing it apart.
You know, robotics costs money and "you can't always get what you want"..And i want a sumo robot!
is about a year that i am working on this robot,i named it Venerdì.You know, a robot after some time makes us attached to it and i really need your hopinions since you are the only ones competent enough to say something about it knowing what you mean!
the robot is for indoors and is a "little" oversized for sumo (it sounds like a paradox :) )
Indoors and huge is not the best combination, anyway it moves pretty well in a room.
What would you do if you have the same materials on your workbench? a big or a small robot?
(i don't have a photocamera, i'll ask a friend for a photo if you want to see it)
Sorry for my bad English.
